**PrivateCorruptionBarometer**We need codify in a numerical code the categories of submissions. Is it possible? And after that, Can we download the submissions with only these numerical categories?

We would like to analyse the results with a numerical code and having these numerical categories will make it easier.

Thanks!

**aubreybourke**You can add a dropdown to select the category.

For example:

Then you submissions will show the selected categories.

**PrivateCorruptionBarometer**Thanks!

But we would like to response the survey in nominal categories and create a numerical code linked with the category.

For example:

In the survey:

Gender:

a) Male

b) Female

In the submissions:

Gender

1

2

2

1

Linking the response a)Male in the survey with 1 in the submission and b)Female with 2 with a condition or other way. Is it possible?

Thanks!

**TREVON**This can be possible only through creation of a work around. We will be checking values of one field if Male then insert numerical values to a hidden field representing 1. Below is a sample form I have created.

I have used the update calculation condition to update values 1 and 2 incase either of the gender preferences are chosen.

Below is a sample of submission made from the form above.

Kindly feel free to clone and use the form above.

**PrivateCorruptionBarometer**Hi Trevon!

Perfect. Your information will be very useful for our purpose.

Thank you very much!
